As for his own role, which has been
viewed by Democratic critics as
lowering the level of the presidential
campaign, Atwater said: "I'm not

to Bush's Democratic foe, Massachu

going to say anything bad about them
at this point. I can't think of anything
bad about them that I didn't say in
the campaign," he said.
Atwater's predecessor on the
national GOP committee, Frank

problem in 1988 was "the wrong,
